Council Recommendation (October 2021) - WHFF to be proactive and initiate discussion with ICAR around inclusivity of production and sensor data, to have a mechanism for labelling the data as certified or non-certified data, so as to give direction to herd book members.

A new 'Inclusivity of more Production Data' Task Force has been created to look at this matter with urgency.
